Little bursts of colour

Even in winter, you can see brilliant bursts of colours. You just have to know where to look... margie weekend_346 margie weekend_343 margie weekend_340 margie weekend_338 margie weekend_336 margie weekend_334 margie weekend_331 margie weekend_328 margie weekend_342 margie weekend_351

A northern girl

When I was a kid, I sort of resented having a birthday in February. I couldn't have a cool pool party like my leo sis. But now, it seems so fitting that my special day happens in the midst of my favourite season. I know I sound like a broken record, but I really, really love winter.

This weekend was perfectly cold, clear and sunny.

The ideal weather to don my skis and get out to celebrate turning 42.

The paired-down landscape revealed many treasures.

Also, left-over birthday cake and hot chai tea are the perfect post-ski treat. Who needs a pool party?! Not this northern girl.

Thank you everyone for your lovely comments on my last post. You're so encouraging!
